3DLabs Pushes For OpenGL 2.0 Over DirectX

3DLabs has posted a PDF on the details they think OpenGL needs to go with for version 2.0. They are basically proposing an open approach that moves away from the hardware-specific extensions as are found in DirectX. The things they are pushing for are platform independence (linux included) and emphasis on programmability, time control and memory managemenmt. NVidia has been travelling down this path as well, as the newest Detonator XP drivers are supposed to include full OpenGL 1.3 extensions.
